500th Dodwell Fuel Oil Blender Installed In Ogden Products Carrier
Dodwell Industrial of Tokyo recently delivered its 500th fuel oil blender to Sumitoma Heavy Industries. It is being installed in a 57,650-dwt products carrier under construction for Ogden Marine of New York. The vessel will be powered by a Sumitomo/Sulzer 4RLA90 diesel engine rated at 14,740 bhp at 101 rpm.
The Dodwell Model MY-A2H2 fuel oil blender will blend heavy oil with marine diesel oil f o r burning in Daihatsu generator engines, Type 6DS-22, rated 1,120 hp at 900 rpm.
Since introduction of the blender in 1975, Dodwell had installed 213 units through 1979. The recent rapid increase in demand for Dodwell fuel oil blenders indicates owners' satisfaction based on savings realized in bunker costs, as well as concern over the steadily increasing MDO costs. Dodwell is represented in the U.S. by Piston Products, Inc., an affiliate of W.B. Arnold Company. For additional information and free literature on Dodwell fuel oil blenders, write to Hugh E.
